Empties Number 5

Empties #5

[lookbook id="25480" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] There was almost a year in-between my first and second Empties posts, but I've recently become a lot more organised (let's see how long it lasts...) so there's around a month between my 5th and 6th post, mainly because I've been focusing on trying to use up products rather than dip in and out of everything.  This is a lot easier to do now my skincare routine is so rigid,[...]

Five Things I Love: January 2018

I'm a little late with my January Love List, and, predictably, it's skincare heavy, since my spots are now gone and I'm revisiting the joy that is trying new and exciting skincare that isn't necessarily for getting rid of spots.  These are the products I was reaching for most last month: Predictably, the Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream got lots of use as it's such a lovely product that gives just the right amount of hydration without[...]

In Rotation: Foundations

I've seen quite a few of these "in rotation" posts (most recently this one, which kick-started my plans) and I realised it would actually be a really good way for me to share my thoughts on the various products I'm reaching for most out of the large quantities of product I work my way through each month.  With that in mind, I thought I'd start things off with a look at some of current favourite foundations. I've broken it all down into thr[...]

Empties #1 – Woo!

I am SO excited to finally be writing this post as I remember when I first started blogging, I made a point of collecting empties so I could write a feature on them, but due to where I used to live before my big move in January, I was limited in where I could store the empty products and I kept losing all of them other than a tub of Clinique's Moisture Surge, which I would look at every so often, then the light in the room would darken and I would[...]


Products I Love – Mid 2016 Review

I haven't done many Products I Love lists this year, so when I was putting together one for May, I realised there were so many products that I've really enjoyed using and reached for continually this year, that it would make sense to do a kind of mid year review, which is exactly what this is! Here are ten products I've been using religiously this year that I will no doubt replenish when finished. Starting with skincare, the Nuxe Rêve de[...]


Five Things I Love: April 2015

Two months in a row! As you may well remember from last month's post, I hadn't done a monthly love list for quite some time, but there's a lot to love at the moment so I happily put together my five favourites for the month of April, although I am a little late in publishing it.  So without further ado (etc, etc) here's a look at my rather skincare-heavy love list for April: First up is the infamous Serozinc, which I've been gagging to try[...]


Five Things I Love: March 2015

I mentioned in my last love list that I was only going to do these monthly round-up features when the mood struck me, as I don't like posts to feel forced which was often the case when I felt I had to put together a featuring containing five of my favourite products.  Consequently it was July of last year that I published the last one - I didn't realise it had been so long! March was an easy one for me as there's some very exciting beauty around[...]


Five Things I Love March 2014

I was quite excited about this month's Love List, and even found myself itching to write it early which is definitely a first for me! It was a very easy collection for me this month as there have been some wonderful standout products, so here are my five favourites for March 2014: GOSH Forever Eyeshadow in Light Copper As mentioned in my post about these shadow sticks here, Light Copper is an extremely easy to wear shade that you can slick on[...]


Five Things that I Love February 2014

I'm back to sporadically posting these love lists unfortunately! I'll try and maintain a level of regularity but I make no promises...This months list is kind of a collection of products that I'm thankful for, which I'll explain in more detail: Bioderma Sensibio I've posted about this amazing micellar soooo many times and it's still the absolute best there is, as I'm sure most would agree.  There are certainly some great micellars available i[...]
